A new journal entry!
I came across a bird called pink breasted grosbeak, after flipping thru Animal Speak, which is about animal totem. Sometimes you come across different animals, which you are attracted to. I've been attracted to the owl, and also love this bird. The interesting thing about this bird is the marking on his chest ,which resembles a heart shape. One of his characteristic his teaching us to heal wounds for mental and emotional harmony. She helps to recognize your own inner voice and power.

Acrylics,fiber paste,glass beads medium
on 140 lbs. Arches hot press paper
I've been in an owl frenzy, since taking Juliette Crane's class in Lifebook.
Here's another little whimsy owl, with a poem excerpt from
Mary Oliver "White Owl". The poem is beautiful. To read it in full visit this link Misty Mawn referred to her in class. I took a small part from the poem , which I felt went nicely with this painting.
Done on 140 lbs. Arches watercolor paper in acrylics,fiber paste for body and wings, and glass beads medium for feathers. Homemade flower stamp on printing paper, and glued on watercolor paper with matte medium
Excerpt reads:
" Coming down out of the freezing sky
with its depths of light
like an angel, or a Buddha with wings"
